The problem is not related to SAMBA!
You should mount fat32 drive with proper permisions first so each local user
on linux
station to be able to read/write/etc..
If you do so  read/write will be accessible through samba too.
Hint: try passing umask parameter (with desired permisions) to mount your
fat drive.
